Francelle  --  I'm with you on the pale color, but if you like its form and branching, why not keep working with it as a breeder for rebloom?  --  Griff

Question:  Does Anna Belle Babson carry rebloom genes?  Here are two pictures of a seedling from Appleblossom Days X Anna Belle Babson. I selected it as the best of an not very auspicious bunch two years ago.  Three times since then I have taken a shovel to send it after its siblings, but each time something stopped me.  It is a vigorous grower.  Two weeks ago I dug one of its five clumps then started admiring its nicely branched stalks.  Yesterday after returning from our cabin, I found it blooming again.  I?m amazed. 


My problem with it is its pale color.  It has no garden presence.  What do you think?
